A decent maple tea. The aroma has a nice amount of maple, and the taste has less but still a nice amount. No bitterness coming from the black tea. A nice malty background. Because I am Canadian and have tasted SO MANY maple teas, I am probably more critical than most of this type of tea, and I am always looking for more maple and so far I have not found that holy grail of maple teas yet. This one is nice enough that I would re-order and drink as a casual tea, but it is not “the one”. I find their Sugar Maple tea to have more more maple in it, and indeed it is the box I empty first. The Canadian Breakfast is nice if you are looking for a black breakfast tea as implied, and the Sugar Maple is sweeter so I consider it a dessert tea. Both could work for different purposes. If you are on the fence about ordering them, I would still recommend it – they are very pleasant for what they are.

I dislike that Murchie’s has upped their 25 gram minimum to 50, and gotten rid of their loose-leaf 25 gram boxes. One of the most solid things about them an some of the other chains (yes, DavidsTea) is that their minimum was way more friendly/made it much easier to sample many teas at once without getting stuck with a tea you didn’t like.

At any rate, they still have the boxes of ten teabags, which I opted for even though I tend to find there’s a difference in taste between their fanningteabags and looseleaf teas.

I associate Canadian breakfast with keemun for some reason, but this blend is strongly assam. Actually, I just checked and it SAYS it’s keemun and ceylon, but this is so overwhelmingly NOT keemun OR ceylon. Maybe an african-grown assam, but still definitely assam. Strong and malty, and almost that overly-tannic berry taste. It’s still got a bit of maple, but it’s definitely a very strong, astringent tea, which might just be due to the teabag although I don’t know how to explain the tea-blend discrepancy.

I love this tea. The teas Murchie’s uses for this breakfast blend work really well, and the addition of maple just makes it that much sweeter (literally). I added half-and-half and minimal sugar to this, and it surpassed expectations. Another plus: I’m reminded of my wonderful time in Vancouver whenever I take a sip :)

Sipdown. A robust tea like this was a perfect way to start off the day of my university convocation (whyyyyy did they schedule the ceremonies so early?)
